Cut out the cards and divide them into “accommodation cards” and “tenant” cards.
On a board make a mind map of the kinds of questions tenants and landlords would ask each other.
Give a tenant card to each student – if your class is big divide into smaller groups and give the same set of cards to each group.
One student from the group picks an accommodation card and then interviews the rest of the group to find his/her most suitable tenant. The most suitable tenant is “Roger the Lodger:” In other words, the winner.
When landlord and tenant have found each other, collect the cards and then hand them out once more and start the process again.
Take notes of any structure, pronunciation, grammar and intonation problems and then address them when the exercise is over.
